Event Description

VICTORIA SKA & REGGAE FEST FREE FINAL DAY EXTRAVAGANZA!

Vancouver reggae legends ROOTS ROUNDUP finally take our Main Stage at Ship Point to help close out another year of super-fine music and art. The music of the longtime champions of west coast reggae was instrumental in the formation of both the Victoria Ska & Reggae Society and Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival. Their sunny, rootys riddims helped inspire our Festival founder and head, revealing the musical community at large and opening the door for new blood into the scene. It's an honour to have them at the festival, dropping their tunes and getting all the Massive dancing.

Nanaimo's first-string crave team, DOPE SODA, will be joining Roots Roundup on the stage, blasting their ultra-friendly, beer-soaked ska music out into the crowd, getting the party jumping to incredible heights. These rowdy ruffians always put a smile on the faces of their crowds and this won't be any different. Los Angeles guitar maestro RUSTY ZINN will be rounding out the proceedings with his incredibly warm brand of roots reggae music. After conquering the world of blues guitar, Zinn has set his sights on the world of reggae and has been making a splash since that change in direction. His albums and songs harken back to the beginning of reggae music, while still sounding wholly at home today.

Come down to the Inner Harbour and close out Victoria Ska & Reggae Fest XVIII in smooth, horn-filled style.

This show is FREE, ALL AGES and FULLY LICENSED (19+)!
